Jacques Derrida in an interview with Derek Attridge once claimed
that Samuel Beckett's works are self-deconstructive. The present
book tries to prove this claim reading Beckett's poetry in light of
Derridean ideas. Beckett has deconstructed each of the motifs of
time, death, identity, love, language and imagery in his poems by
finding their being a supplement to their opposite, and the
undecidability in their nature, or elaborating on them in a way
that they can easily be labeled with the terminology of Derrida,
although he does not use these terms. Deconstructive approach of
Beckett towards the above mentioned themes in his poems is as
significant as in his fictions and dramas. However, his poetry has
been mostly ignored by critics. In this book the researcher has
focused on these precious literary works and translated the French
ones into English as a contribution to Beckett who always loved to
be known as a poet.
